MJ Tribute

Wow, this is weird. I have really not paid a while lot of attention to the coverage of Michel Jackson and his death. He passed away the night before we left for Idaho. I thought it was sort of odd and unfair that Farrah got overwhelmed by him.

But I have been aware of the uproar over how much coverage he has received. With the memorial going on today I wanted to tune in and catch some of the weirdness. Fox News streamed on my computer more easily than CNN or anything else so I am watching it and I am sort of shocked that they are covering it all so straight, with no irony or real awareness about the weirdness. In this age of Comedy Central how is this super square, overly earnest approach still the norm?
